Milwaukee Home Movie Day 2023

October 14, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

UWM Libraries’ Archives, UWM Films Studies Program, and UWM Department of Film, Video, Animation and New Genres present Home Movie Day on Saturday, October 14, 2023 from noon to 4 p.m. in Room B91 in Mitchell Hall, 3202 N. Downer Ave. in Milwaukee.

The public is invited to bring their home movies in 8mm, Super 8, 16mm, VHS, Mini-DV, or digital formats to have them inspected and/or repaired by UWM volunteers and screened for an audience while the owner narrates. Films will be screened on a first come, first served basis, as projectors become available.

Throughout the day, volunteers will provide quick explanations on how to care for film, video, and digital files; ideas on where to get old media transferred; tips for choosing a vendor; and other subjects.

There will also be a recurring raffle and interactive games such as Home Movie Day Bingo, where participants will identify objects on screen for prizes.

This free event is open to people who want to simply watch other people’s home movies as well.

A NOTE ON OUR SPONSORS: Door prizes will be provided by our sponsor, Fischbergers Variety. Also thanks to sponsor Pixologie.
